There are only two fish species with the true inbred lines. These are
medaka, Oryzias latipes and Platyfish, Xiphophorus maculatus
Medaka inbred lines are available from my lab and Platyfish is available
from Dr. Manfred Schartl (University of Wuerzburg, Germany).
If you think about alternative models for your research, we can help you.
You can breed medaka and platyfish in the same fish tank for zebrafish.

Subject: [Zbrafish] Request: zebrafish inbred line
I am working with the zebrafish as an infection model for several pathogens.
At the moment we are using the wildtype AB strain from ZIRC. But to minimize
the amount of background in my experiments I would like to use one of the
inbred strains; either sjA (AB), sJC(C32) or sJD. I contacted the Steve
Johnson's laborarory and they are currently not distributing those strains.
Does anyone have inbred zebrafish swimming? Or knows someone making there
own inbred zebrafish?
